Computer Associates, (CA) premier channel partners revved up for next month’s Australian Grand Prix with a party at The Establishment in Sydney. More than 100 resellers and distributors turned up to the theme night, held in recognition of CA’s sponsorship of the West Mercedes McLaren team.
Partygoers were tempted with brand-coloured cocktail options of green BrightStor Blasts (Midori melon liqueur, Malibu, pineapple juice and cream) or red eTrust Explosions (strawberry schnapps, light rum, lime juice, powdered sugar and strawberries).
Resellers shifting plenty of CA software will have the chance to enjoy one more themed event — the Australian Grand Prix 2003 at Albert Park, Melbourne, March 6-9.
Any resellers managing to sell $10,000 of CA software in the month leading up to February 26 will be asked to write in 25 words or less why the best channel solutions are at CA. Five people will each win double passes to all four days. Accommodation at the four-star Aria Hotel and travel expenses are included. More than 20 resellers are expected to qualify to enter the draw.
